Started at meta relativity recently and my hours have been crazy. I can’t tell if this is typical or just my team

It seems like most people I talk to in the business feel like they have decent WLB but my legal team is always working nights and weekends. Was curious about other legal teams I don’t work with

Hello Guys,

I have 8 years of experience with more than 4 years in the current organization. Current package is 9.5 LPA. I have offers with Accenture (14L fixed and 4L variable) and CTS (15.5L fixed and 70k variable) both having more than 75% hike.
In my current organization, I see a scope for onsite assignment (not 100% confirmed though). I am confused of which one to choose - Wheather to stay back or switch to which company.

Any suggestion is appreciated. Thanks

How do you do the bare minimum at work? I don’t want to overwork myself this time, but I need to hang on to this job for a little while. I’ve never been good with “balance” or “pacing myself.” I try all the time but sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever get it together. So I’m asking… what does a more measured speed look like? What’s average office etiquette anymore? Or do we all have to be dialed up to 10 all the time now? I feel so on edge starting this new job a few months in….

Can anyone provide insight into Meta Lead Counsel/IC5 total comp? I have an offer (DC) for 210 base/15% bonus/185 equity over four years, and I’m wondering what others have received, how much I can negotiate, etc. I understand base and bonus may not be negotiable, but I’ve heard that technical folks have negotiated equity packages 3-4x the amount I was offered - so is there a lot of room there? Thanks in advance!


Let’s get this going? Comp survey?


It seems like we’ve had many people join from firms today. In the in-house bowl we had a lot of people speaking about F50 who don’t actually work there and the info/advice was often not accurate. If you’re not at an F50 feel free to ask questions but please refrain from commenting on things you don’t have first hand knowledge of so we can avoid the misinformation issues and make this bowl helpful for all
